Important and Useful info from (c) Microsoft!

When you delete a file, it gets moved to the Recycle Bin, where it's stored temporarily. Think of the Recycle Bin as a safety net that allows you to recover files or folders that you might have accidentally deleted. To open the Recycle Bin in File Explorer, enter Recycle Bin in the address bar.

Occasionally, you should empty the Recycle Bin to reclaim all of the storage space being used by files you don't need anymore. To empty the Recycle Bin, right-click or press and hold it, and then tap or click Empty Recycle Bin.

2.) Solution 2: to open Recycle Bin Folder Properties via run command!

Pleas RUN command shell:RecycleBinFolder to open the Recycle in Windows 8.1 and right click in empty place in Explorer View!

Info (c) Microsoft:
If you have multiple partitions, hard drives, or an external HD connected to your computer, every location will have its own Recycle Bin settings. When changing the settings of the Recycle Bin via Properties dialog, under Recycle Bin Location, make sure you select the location you want to change. (... see Image-2 Arrow-4)!
